[Desktop] Version 0.9.0 resets the cache location to default

Thread: 364532

Status: Resolved

Description:

Since update 0.9.0 the cache location resets every time you exit the app.
This has two side effects:
Any content you had downloaded before 0.9.0 is gone
Any users with a small primary hard disk are unable to download tracks
 

Additional information:

You can now download the latest version from spotify.com; this will resolve this bug.

We have started rolling out version 0.9.0.129 to users and can confirm this bug is resolved.

If you don't have this latest version yet, do not worry. It will reach everyone soon.

 

Pro tip: log out and in of the Spotify app around the time of a new release; sometimes this triggers an update.

I also have this problem. The path is correct in my preferences but Spotify does not care and use default cache path.

I have the same issue too. Spotify version 0.9.0

Two windows 8 computers 64bit.

It happened once with my phone, but I guess it doesn't happen anymore since I don't exit the app on my phone. ( Android )
